    Cruz Makes More History Against Redskins

    http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/gia...e-giants-again

    Excerpt: "
    Seven weeks into the NFL season, we can say this, for sure:Victor Cruz is no one-year wonder.

    Cruz came through yet again on Sunday, with a 77-yard touchdown grab with less than two minutes remaining and the winning score in the Giants' 27-23 victory over the Redskins.

    That's the longest game-winning TD in the final two minutes of the fourth quarter in Giants history.

    "[It was] A great route by Victor -- great decision," said quarterback Eli Manning. "I had good protection, I was able to put it up there and he ran under it to go get the touchdown."

    The Giants had just given up the lead when Redskins QB Robert Griffin III connected withSantana Moss on a 30-yard TD strike, putting Washington up 23-20 with 1:32 to play. AfterDavid Wilson returned the kickoff to the Giants' 23-yard line, and following an incompletion on first down, the G-Men faced 2nd-and-10 with 1:23 left in the game.

    That's when Cruz, from the right slot position, took off and streaked down the field, hauling in the bomb from Manning.

    "As I was going vertical, I just saw that the safeties were wide and they were outside of the numbers, and I saw the middle of the field wide open, so I just took it," Cruz said. "I just kept going vertical and Eli saw it the same way."

    Cruz had seven catches for 131 yards on the day. It's his fourth straight game with at least one touchdown catch. " Read more...

    thank god eli woke up that final drive. he missed a bunch of throws and the ints were just ugly. but Cruz is the kinda talent where u can just get him the ball and good things happen.

    I was thinking during the game that it's just possible Eli is thrown off his game when the other team has a more up-tempo game. Nothing scientific about it, just a thought.

    eli struggles with washington historicaly. he looked excellent but he missed too many throws and that brought his level of play down imho. he made up for the mssed passes with that perfect pass late to cruz tho

    Eli's ints were BAD, 2nd one especially. Other than those and missed td to cruz I thought he was making good throws

    Yes, that's true. But in the end we were able to pull off a win
